Here are some random things I found in Hong Kong at a market. I like all of the different iPhone Boxes and sweet car phones.
These images are in response to mashables post on Emoticon movies. Here is a back and forth between myself and my sister trying to come up with new ones.
For answers post in the comments.
Every year there is a parade in every area to bring in the holiday season. Here are a few tips to make sure that you don’t miss out on the view, no matter how busy your area may be.
Line up early – Even the busiest of cities will not have people waiting around all year for a spot. Line up a few hours before the start, don’t look too much like a beggar sitting on the street, and keep warm, its frosty out there.
“My Parents are waiting for me” trick – it may annoy everyone else when they realize you are lying, but pushing through the crowd with the intent of meeting up with parents or friends is key to a front row spot. As long as you are not 7’2″ people will accept your new spot after some time. Avoid eye contact though.
Jump your way to the front – ever heard of Flyjumper? these were used on the orks in the Lord of the rings play (but you never saw that…clearly). They will allow you to jump higher than ever before, rocketing you to the front of any crowd. Try not to jump too far or you may cause some damage. check these out at http://www.flyjumperstore.ca/.
Personal Box - while this takes away the risk and effort related to jumping over the crowd, it is not fool proof and there still may be someone taller than you. This will be more effective than standing on any other object because being personal, others will not try to userp your height advantage, unless you are in New York, then it is fair game.
Own the Show - What will give you a more effective and personal view of a parade than being part of it. This being parade weekend it may be too late to join, but that does not mean you cannot take someone else’s job. This can be learned from Arnold in Jingle all the way. Just don’t put anyone else at risk, unless it is part of the show.
You are now ready to take on any show, no matter where it is.
When facebook started using promoted advertising I felt it was a complete intrusion on privacy. They took information from what our interests were and got companies to advertise to us based on this. I hadn’t thought about this information being public and was not impressed when i saw advertisements geared at me from my interests.
Yesterday I got a promoted tweet from Canadian Tire. It was a tweet to take part in a contest. This promoted tweet led to me following the company and entering the contest. I have always viewed everything on twitter to be completely public and have no problem receiving promoted tweets to my timeline. Anyone that complains should realize that this is a free service and that it is like complaining about super bowl commercials. The difference here is that the tweets are often interesting and can easily be dismissed. I see these promoted tweets being great for twitter and beneficial for any business looking to get noticed.
